"Dr. Petroff was the most humble, amazing doctor I have ever met. I would recommend him and his team to anyone looking to have a medical procedure done. I have never felt so comfortable with a medical team, where I knew from the beginning that this is the place I 100% want to have my surgery done at. Every single person I met there was friendly, organized, and very professional. He is an amazing doctor that has an incredible gift and he has a whole team that makes his practice so ideal."- K. / Healthgrades / Jul 20, 2018
"If I could give Dr. Petroff 10 stars I would. He is a fantastic and extremely talented plastic surgeon for the face. I received a revision rhinoplasty through Petroff. My driest rhinoplasty was with an entirely different surgeon almost two years ago. My previous surgeon was too conservative and did not provide the results I’d asked for. After consulting with several surgeons and researching, The Petroff center was by far the most impressive. If you are seeking a rhinoplasty or revision, look no further, because he will make your dreams come true. Not only is his technic with the nose fantastic, all of his patients have similar results showing his technique is consistent. Outside of Dr. Petroffs technical skills and attention to detail/your needs, his medical staff was fantastic. From the scheduling, pre op and post op care, I was thoroughly communicated with via email and phone calls. His team also offers a vitamin treatment to prep for your procedure making your body stronger for the healing process. The sedation process for the procedure was great and the nurses were holding my hands/arms for comfort since I was nervous. After coming out of surgery, I had a bouquet of roses with an adorable poem from the staff. I can’t believe I went somewhere else before Petroff, I wish I would have gone to him sooner. Regardless, I have no regrets and admire his talent, as well as his staffs talents."- J.B. / Yelp / May 19, 2022

"I had rhinoplasty with Dr Petroff in the summer of 2005. This many years on I can attest to the quality of his skill. Completely natural looking and absolutely improved my life."- T. / Google / Jul 23, 2021
"I can’t speak highly enough about Dr Petroff and his staff. I started visiting the center years ago for facials, chemical peels and laser treatments. I was always completely amazed and how amazing the staff was, and how much my skin improved. I had always hoped to one day fix my crooked nose. There was no doubt in my mind Dr Petroff would be the surgeon for me, after seeing his amazing work on my family and friends. I had a rhinoplasty done a little over a year and a half ago... and to this day I’m still in complete awe of his work. I couldn’t imagine a more perfect nose for my face. My nose was unique but Dr Petroff was able to transform it. I am forever thankful to Dr Petroff, and his amazing staff who has always made me feel comfortable and welcomed."- K.A. / Yelp / Jul 21, 2021
What to Expect
A waxing treatment will involve our licensed aesthetician applying hot wax to cloth strips. The strips will then be administered to the areas that are being treated. The aesthetician will quickly tug on the cloth to remove the hair at the follicle. If the eyebrows are being waxed, the patient can consult beforehand on the desired shape and outcome. Some pain and redness may result, but it will subside shortly. Some patients may wish to combine their brow waxing with brow tinting as well, which can be performed simultaneously.
Patients can expect their treated area to have little to no hair after being waxed. Depending on the patient and hair texture, results will vary. Typically, patients can expect to have smooth skin for 3 - 4 weeks. After the hair growth is long enough, patients can schedule another waxing appointment.
